Celebrating Change

Celebrate Change, Uniqueness, and Individual Gifts

Rites of Passage can provide the celebrant experiences of separation, challenge, education, acknowledgement, love, acceptance, community and culture. Significant passages experienced by most humans are: birth into the earthly life, puberty, adult to elder and death into the spiritual living. Prominent opportunities for ceremonial rites of passage include births, adoptions, puberty, marriage, divorce, croning, grandmother-grandfather, and elder celebrations. Rites of passage and celebrations at birth, puberty, elder-hood and death are essential. (see Life’s Celebrations)
